We just got back from four nights at the Palace. It was peaceful, romantic and totally awesome. It is the low season and there were just my husband and myself and one other couple at the whole resort. It has a totally private (and isolated) beach and for three days my husband and I were the only ones on the... More

I don't know where to begin. We stayed for 8 days all inclusive and it was absolutely amazing. We were greeted on our first day with delicious drinks and the most wonderful people. The manager Juan Carlos got us checked in and showed us around what I can only describe as a stunning hotel. It is truly a palace. It... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Palace for our honeymoon, but we would go back in a second for another vacation together or with friends. We chose the Palace because it is small and intimate, but still offered the option of having meals and drinks included with your stay. The Palace was an ideal combination of getting... More

I am not the kind of person who goes to an exotic place and stays at the resort the whole time. Yet, that is exactly what I happily did during our time at the Palace at Playa Grande in Rio San Juan. I’m also not the kind of person who likes to go back to the same place over and... More

I was just looking at my pictures from our honeymoon and forgot that I never wrote a review! I feel like I'm going to repeat many of things already said in previous reviews. I spent many hours researching resorts for our honeymoon and when I came across the Palace on Groupon, I hadn't come across that many positive reviews for... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at the Palace -- what a treat! The property is astonishingly beautiful and incredibly well maintained and the level of service was fantastic. We've stayed at many five star hotels in the US and Europe, and we've never experiences such a caring, thoughtful and cooperative staff. The manager was waiting for us when... More

My husband and I stayed here from 6/13-6/16/13. It's a bit of a trek out but well worth it. The service is outstanding. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and the rooms. The grounds were spacious, the beach was private, and the cliff views were outstanding. We flew in from NYC for a weekend getaway and it was perfect.... More

We found this place on Groupon and booked our honeymoon at a steep discount during their "off" season (Dec-May I believe). For a reasonable additional fee we were offered the ocean view + Jacuzzi room by Mark Lahood. At first we were worried about the weather conditions being in their "off" season but we got rave reviews from a friend... More
